    I have been working at Wood Group PSN full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart people, interesting work in local and international oil and gas projects. Practices what it preaches in terms of safety - reminded daily of the importance of a strong safety culture.

    Cons

    Limited personal development opportunities at the moment due to limited work (on the back of slow economic conditions and lack of operator activity). Do not feel valued as an employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lacking in definition of defined career paths. Considerably more can be done to make employees feel valued - it's the little things that count.

    None worth mentioning that matter

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its important to share learning's amongst all your team, why have people struggle with the same problem at different sites when its already solved somewhere.

    Wood Group is an ok company, when it was managed by the "Scot's" here in the US it seemed to be more "people" oriented

    Pros

    Diverse group of employees - good benefits- CEO is a great guy- wish he would clone himself into all management roles. People under him need to really learn from him.

    Cons

    "People" are not at the core of their values- some managers don't seem to want to help you grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the best way to get people to work better is by providing them the comfort of growth, great family-work life-

    I have been working at Wood Group PSN full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Various places and companies to work with. 14 days on and 14 days off. Decent benefits, medical, dental, vision and 401k with matching.

    Cons

    Pay is not great for the time spent away from your family and friends. That may depend on which contract you're working under. If you have a family (wife and children), being gone for 14 days away from them is hard. Some of the people you will work with are not friendly at all. Which can make for a very long 14 days. Training classes are mandatory and are only scheduled during your time off (although you do get paid for those days) which cuts into time home with family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't tell your employees lies to keep them working. That will only satisfy them in the short term.

    I worked at Wood Group PSN full-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers, competitive salaries, 401k with company match, safety conscious, work half days on Friday, great experience

    Cons

    Terrible managers, company does not care about employees, no opportunities for training, limited advancement opportunities, low morale, lots of rumors and guessing games because management doesn't communicate with emloyees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote people to management based on qualifications and not who they know. Train management on how to treat and talk to staff. Make your employees feel valued.

    Pros

    Good working environment.
    Strong core values.
    It is a good place to start a career, there are several courses provided mainly to develop your soft skills and help building a solid working attitude.

    Cons

    Poor benefits.
    Poor interaction with other Wood Group Companies (Mustang, Kenny, etc.).
    Still lot to do to consolidate the whole Group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a big area of middle Management which puts a big distance between Executive levels and basic employees. There seems to be a genuine effort from the CEO to reduce this distance but still lot can be done.

    Good people... bad management---all talk!!

    I have been working at Wood Group PSN full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Generally, good people (non senior/executive management).

    Cons

    Senior management speaks a lot of fluff. Talks about core values but don't follow them, especially the one around "people". All talk and NO walk. There are some good senior management and they seem to be the outlier and either leave or get booted out. New management is not the same as before, especially since 2014.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at yourself in the mirror... ask yourself if you are proud of who you are. Quit being a click among yourselves and actually know the people who actually work hard in making the company good.

    Pros

    Understanding of personal time off. Excellent Benefits, good work life balance. Safety is a priority for the company.

    Cons

    Frequent changes in office procedure often resulting in issues with Accounts Receivables. At times the environment is too familiar and the professional line is crossed by a few employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not much to say, other than at times the environment is too familiar and the professional line is crossed by a few employees.
